It is a boat tour through the 5 islands of Gigoia. An atypical and picturesque visit, which makes you disconnect from the urbanized world and also transports you to a wild animal reserve; the Cariocas call it the Pantanal Carioca
This visit is short, the ideal is to place it in addition just behind a classic visit or a hike.
Unknown even for many inhabitants and hidden by buildings of Barra da Tijuca, Gig贸ia Island shelters about three thousand inhabitants.
Far from the classic tours of Rio de Janeiro; take a boat trip around the islands of Gigoia and the most surprising.
Arriving on the island, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. The environment is calm and alternative. No streets or cars, residents and visitors walk all the way through the alleys. "Welcome to another dimension. Yes, it is almost a return to the past or in a few minutes, you find yourself in an environment of the most beautiful! Do not panic, the internet works!
For those who want to have a good time, at the end of the visit, I recommend you to have lunch or take a break, at the Cicero restaurant.
The dishes are good and well served! I recommend the "Moqueca de Camar茫o" for those who love prawns.
Cicero Bar is one of the most popular on the island. The restaurant is right across the canal, and offers cold beer or caipirinha made to order. The house, however, is known for its fish stew and seafood. The dishes are simple and well served! I recommend the "Moqueca de Camar茫o" for those who love shrimp.
